One of the most popular of the micro-greens. Our Cress is: garden cress or curly cress. The Latin name is Lepitum sativum Certified Organic Non-GMO Cress has a very strong peppery taste and feel to its sprout. This is NOT a mild tasting sprout. It should be ADDED to other sprouts, raw sprouted soups and raw salads. NOT to be used as a base for soups and salads. Cress is a gelatinous seed. That means that a gel like sac forms around the seed when it gets wet. Just like flax and psyllium and arugula. These seeds do not need to be pre-soaked before they are sprouted. Because, the pre-soaking will just make a gooey thing of seeds in your jar or bowl of water. If you use gelatinous seeds in a mix, they should be no more than 10% of the entire mix. Cress and other gelatinous seeds can be sprouted in a number of different ways. One of them is to sprout them using a clay tray sprouter. This method keeps the seeds wet from below because the clay absorbs water. This is a great way to grow gelatinous seeds. Another method is to sprout them ON TOP of a sprout bag. You can also use our Sure To Grow mats. If you use the Sure To Grow mats, you can use any sprouter. I have been growing Cress with the Sprout Master Tray Sprouters and the Sure To Grow mats with terrific results.
